Menomonee Avenue facelift almost complete

Aug. 20, 2014

Menomonee Falls — The much-needed facelift to Menomonee Avenue has been revealed, and while village officials know its not as good as new, it is certainly an improvement.

At an estimated cost of about $200,000, the repaving project removed rough spots and resurfaced the stretch of road between Appleton Avenue and Town Hall Road. Originally slated for late-May, the project was delayed until August due to the high demand of contractors during the summer months.

It was the first time the village attempted this kind of repaving project, which essentially recycles existing roadway and reuses the asphalt. Taking just about a week to complete, Village Manager Mark Fitzgerald said the village will likely use the method again elsewhere in the village.

In the meantime, village officials plan to continue seeking state assistance to fund a complete $3 million overhaul of the road, hopefully by 2018.
